Remembering Blaze Bernstein

by Kris Barz

Editor’s note: upon finding out about what happened to Blaze Bernstein, Out and About artist Kris Barz was moved to create a memorial comic for Blaze. We will be sending this to the Bernstein family, along with dozens of notes from folks who donated in Blaze’s memory.

About the author:

Out&About is a comics series created by illustrator Kris Barz that tells the story of Kevin and his friends going through life and its challenges. All the characters are part of the LGBTQIA community. The stories are about friendships, relationships, work, family, sexism, prejudice and the strips touch those issues with irony, comedy and a little bit of sarcasm.

The webcomic is an independent project and the official website has just been launched. Go to and check it out! Help fund Out&About here.
